Harper’s Birthday Party

IMG_2214 2It’s hard to believe that my baby is 2 already! Harper is such a happy little guy. He loves to give hugs and kisses, but he can also fight off anyone who tries to take a toy away from him.

IMG_2207 2Harper likes playing with cars. And though he is not obsessed with the Disney movie “Cars” (he likes it), I thought it was a good theme for his birthday party. With a power nap short of 2 hours in the late evening, I pulled an all-nighter to make this cake. I often kick myself for taking on crazy projects and stressing out about them, but it is all worth it at the end (not so much in the process though). The cake was chocolate with a whipped chocolate ganache layer and chocolate buttercream frosting. It was a hit. IMG_2208 2IMG_2226 2Harper with Alexis – his favorite babysitter at the gym. Everyday when I pick Harper and Andre up at the gym’s kids’ club, Harper won’t leave without giving Alexis a hug and a kiss.IMG_2232 2We had quite a turnout of friends. There was a mound of presents which I failed to take a picture of. Thank you everyone for making this day special for our little guy!IMG_2236 2IMG_2245 2And there goes the cake… The fruit of my labors…IMG_2251 2IMG_2252 2Now that’s a happy boy!  IMG_2259 2IMG_2263 2Denys with her nieceIMG_2276 2Julie and JackIMG_2266 2Suzy liked the cakeIMG_2269 2IMG_2285 2
